GEAK OS Review

What happens if you take a typical Android launcher, and turn it into a launcher with everything bundled? A phone, a calculator, a news reader – GEAK OS is everything and that. GEAK OS, at the time of writing, is a launcher, together with a news reader, text messaging client, dialler, market, and contacts management client.

Pros and Cons of Getting a MediaTek Device

Hey there! Samsung or Apple smartphones too expensive? Considering getting one of those cheap Chinese smartphones? You may be wondering why they’re so cheap, right? Of course you do. The main reason why those devices are so cheap is that they run on MediaTek SoCs (System on a Chip), which are usually a bundle of a CPU, and a GPU, and these SoCs are usually sold at ridiculously cheap prices, even going as low as 10 USD. If you don’t believe what I’ve just said, check out the specifications for the device you’re considering, it’s probably running a MediaTek chip.

WhatsAppMD Review

UPDATE: WhatsAppMD has since been taken down, and WhatsApp has updated their app with the Material design. Ever wondered when Facebook is going to update WhatsApp with the latest Material Design elements? Well, my guess is probably never.

A developer by the name of Joaquin Cuitiño has kindly taken up the challenge of remaking WhatsApp, and adding in the Material Design elements into it.

Duet Review

When you think smartphone game, you think of something that can be played with only your fingers, preferably the lesser the better. Duet is one of those games that only require you to tap or hold your finger on the screen, yet presents you with challenging tasks such as, to put it simply, avoiding tiles, avoiding tiles that move, avoiding tiles that spin, and avoiding tiles that disappear. It sounds simple, until you realise that you have to not move, but rotate two circles around to get to doing that. One goes clockwise, the other goes counterclockwise. The game isn’t particularly difficult, such as games like Geometry Dash, but is still pretty challenging for people like me, who are new to video games.
